10 Easy Pieces: Essential Small Appliances for the Kitchen

March 5, 2010

With space at a premium in our kitchens (none of us at Remodelista have especially large spaces), we all limit our appliances to those we can’t live without. Here is our selection of essential, well-designed small appliances for the kitchen. N.B. We’ve omitted espresso makers; we’ll post a roundup at a later date.

TOASTING & GRILLING

Above: Assembled by hand in England, the Dualit Two-Slice Toaster is $242.78 at Amazon; available in nine colors plus chrome (Sarah and Janet are aficionadoes).

Above: Instead of a toaster, Julie likes the Cuisinart BRK-100 Brick Oven Classic; $129.95 at Amazon.

Above: Villaware V2160 Uno ProPress Panini Grill; $74.95 at Amazon.

BLENDING AND MIXING

Above: The classic Waring 40 Ounce Two-Speed Chrome Bar Blender is a lifetime investment; $159 at Food Service Warehouse.

Above: A staple in Sarah’s kitchen, the Cuisinart CSB-76 Smart Stick Hand Blender $29.95 at Amazon.

Above: A countertop classic, the KitchenAid Classic 4.5 Quart Stand Mixer in white (other colors are available) is $179 at Amazon.

Above: The Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus Food Processor is Janet’s favorite for small-batch pureeing and other small prep tasks; $49.95 (usually $90) at Sur La Table.

COFFE & TEA

Above: The Jasper Morrison–designed Rowenta Coffee Maker is a modern classic; $175 from Amazon.

Above L: The Mazzer Mini Coffee Grinder is the best of the best, but it’s an investment at $659 at Amazon. Above R: Coffeegeek’s highly rated affordable option is the Krups GVX2-12 Burr Grinder; $49.99 at Amazon.

Above: Francesca is a fan of the Bodum Electric Kettle; the 57-ounce cordless model is $49.99 at Amazon.
